Pale blue pod, a new podcast from Multitude, explores astronomy with a relatable and playful approach. The show is co-hosted by astrophysicist Dr. Moiya McTier and comedian Corinne Caputo, who bring their warmth and curiosity to each episode as they strive to demystify questions about the universe.

McTier is the author of the popular science book, The Milky Way: An Autobiography of the Galaxy. She has also given hundreds of public talks on the subject and hosts the podcast Exolore, about building a fictional world based on fact. Caputo is a comedy writer who has always had a deep fascination with space. She created a long-running monthly game show called astronaut training and released a self-help parody titled How to succeed! A Writer’s Guide to Fame and Fortune, which was published by Chronicle Books. The first episode of Pale Blue Pod drops today, with a new episode every Monday.

Forbes spoke to McTier and Caputo about creating Pale blue pod. We also discussed what they’ve learned so far while working on it, and if they’re planning on having any special guests.

Risa Sarachan: You talk about it a bit in the first episode, but can you share with our readers how you first connected and how this podcast came about?

Corinne Caputo: I used to host a comedy game show at Caveat in New York called astronaut training (Imagine if a Nickelodeon game show from the 90s appeared in space). I paired scientists and comedians and the teams competed to “win” a trip to space. It was incredibly fun and made even better by the kind and hilarious scientists I cold called and asked to be on my show, especially Moiya! Moiya was a regular guest and still won (I will send it in the space any day). She and I lost contact after the show ended abruptly (thanks, Covid), but I was thrilled to see an email from Moiya in my inbox this summer asking if I wanted to co-host a space podcast with her!

Dr. Moiya McTier: I remembered my time(s) at Astronaut Training so well that when the creative team at Multitude suggested I do a space podcast, Corinne was an obvious choice for a potential co-host. A kind and funny person with a proven ability to drive a show and space-related work story forward? It’s exactly what I needed! I sent her a cold email after years of no contact (thanks again, Covid) and was thrilled when she agreed to do the show. It seemed like a sign from the universe that we were both miraculously free at the same time to do this show together.

Sarachan: Who do you think would enjoy this podcast?

Caputo: I think of everyone who was interested in space when they were little, and everyone who is interested in space now. It’s a low-pressure atmosphere for learning and having fun, which is so rare when you’re in a formal school setting.

McTier: This show is for anyone who thinks space is cool, but also a little scary. It’s for curious people with a healthy dose of wonder and wonder about the universe who like to laugh. And to be completely honest, it’s for anyone who’s tired of hearing dudes talk about space and not appreciate its splendor, because no matter what some famous scientists say, eclipses and other space phenomena don’t will never be “unspectacular”.

Sarachan: Moiya, you talk about falling in love with space after graduating. Do you think recording Pale Blue Pod helped you find your passion?

McTier: When I was in college, I spent all my time doing calculations about space and listening to people talk about it in the most boring and uninspired way imaginable. I began to associate the space with the natural stress of a PhD program, and it crushed my sense of wonder.

Pale blue pod allows me to talk about the universe with a funny and curious co-host, and seeing her appreciation for space grow with each episode has already helped me find a certain passion. I look forward to the continuation of this trip.

Sarachan: I love how this podcast makes the space accessible and doesn’t intimidate anyone who is open to learning more! Will you have any special guests on the show?

Caputo: For now, it’s just us, but it’s not off the table to chat with special guests. Let us know if you have the man on the moon’s number – we’d love to hear from him.

McTier: We might make a few exceptions for very special guests in the future, but for now I’m enjoying these one-on-one conversations with Corinne in all the cozy places we visit for our recordings, like the living room of my grandmother.

Sarachan: Corinne, what’s your favorite thing you’ve learned so far about space from Moiya?

Caputo: Oh wow, so much. I’m not sure I have a favorite thingbut it is quickly becoming my favorite way learn. Who wouldn’t love their enthusiastic and funny friend patiently explaining a cool concept? ! Also, I lied; my favorite moment was when Moiya recommended I call dark matter “transparent matter” instead, and it took all my fear away and made me so excited and curious to know more!

Sarachan: Moiya, I like how ancient folklore ties into some of the information you give. What’s your favorite topic you’ve covered on the podcast so far?

McTier: My favorite topics in astronomy (aside from exoplanets, which we haven’t covered yet) are always those that have a direct connection to folklore. We have an episode on upcoming eclipses, and it’s really cool to be able to talk about the modern science behind an eclipse while acknowledging the awesome math ancient humans used to predict them and the imaginative yet helpful stories that different cultures told to explain to them.

This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Penn State overwhelms Maryland and builds late-season momentum https://metawelle.net/penn-state-overwhelms-maryland-and-builds-late-season-momentum/ Sun, 13 Nov 2022 05:50:03 +0000 https://metawelle.net/penn-state-overwhelms-maryland-and-builds-late-season-momentum/

Penn State didn’t leave much doubt about the result against Maryland on Saturday, taking a 27-0 halftime lead and staying in control throughout a 30-0 win. Fresh from the Beaver Stadium press box, we’re back to break down a Big Ten game that took the No. 14 Nittany Lions 8-2.

We weave our way through key storylines for a second straight conference win, including another Penn State pass rush assault, a pair of fourth-touchdown sprints for freshman running back Nick Singleton and an impressive effort produced by a limited offensive line with injury issues.

The Nittany Lions clearly looked like a motivated team in November, and there’s a lot to appreciate in the positive momentum PSU has established. With a 10-win regular season and high-level bowl still achievable, a mix of current success and long-term optimism is on the cards.

Additionally, we sort out the absences of players from the Maryland game, highlight special teams developments, and highlight the unscheduled return of a previously injured Nittany Lions defenseman.

See the video of this episode on YouTube HERE. You can follow our YouTube page HERE. All are welcome to submit your mailbag questions on Apple Podcasts giving a five star review.

You can find the Lions247 podcast at Apple podcast, embroiderer and google play. We are also now on Spotify! So subscribe and enjoy!

We’ll be back next week with three more episodes of the Lions247 podcast leading up to the Nov. 12 kickoff against Maryland.

His daughter is recorded during a live podcast https://metawelle.net/his-daughter-is-recorded-during-a-live-podcast/ Thu, 10 Nov 2022 05:04:10 +0000 https://metawelle.net/his-daughter-is-recorded-during-a-live-podcast/

The daughter of Athens office manager Debbie Collier, whose disturbing death in Habersham County has sparked widespread speculation, shared her story on Wednesday evening during a live podcast.

Amanda Bearden who hosted the Crime on the Record podcast during a special live stream.

Bearden revealed for the first time that she believed her mother killed herself.

Collier was found dead and naked on September 11 in the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest south of Clayton, a 90-minute drive from her home in Athens. Her husband, Steven Collier, reported her missing around 6 p.m. the day before. She was discovered a few meters below the site of a small fire, with burns to her stomach, soot in her nostrils and clinging to a small tree.

Collier was last seen alive at a Family Dollar store on September 10, buying several items that were found burned near her remains. She also stopped by a Chick-fil-A restaurant beforehand, the sources noted.

The missing person report came after she sent a bizarre Venmo payment to her daughter, Amanda Bearden, of nearly $2,400 with the cryptic message: “They won’t let me go love you a while ago. house key in the blue flowerpot by the door.”

Bearden and her boyfriend had returned to Athens from Mayland just days before she disappeared.

She remembers being at the scene when investigators made the discovery.

“They were in those woods maybe ten minutes and the policeman came back and he said, ‘Come here’. And I knew…” she told podcasters.

At first, authorities said they were investigating his death as a homicide, but have since backtracked.

She says her mother was depressed and gave away some of her belongings days before she died.

Bearden has denied any involvement in his mother’s death.

She told the podcaster that she had already provided investigators with a sample of her DNA.

She said online rumors and speculation had damaged her relationship with her family.

My whole family turned against me. So, I understand thinking, you know, ‘This girl is crazy.’ But they are horrible human beings and I pray that the trauma and pain that I had to go through when the police did that press conference, which they told me they would hopefully do that you won’t do this to another family,” Bearden said during the podcast live stream.

Bearden says law enforcement seized money from a Venmo payment his mother sent him the day he died.

They have since returned it to her.

Authorities have yet to release the autopsy report, toxicology results or his official cause and manner of death.

The FBI and GBI continue to investigate Collier’s death.

This week, Charlie Lindlar chooses five of the best podcasts for working outfrom tales of sporting greatness (and scandal) to inspiring tales of perseverance

30 for 30
If you couldn’t get enough of The Last Dance in lockdown, this podcast is for you. Originally an Oscar-winning documentary series by American broadcasting titan ESPN, 30 for 30 now also exists in audio form, offering another way to delve into moving (and often shocking) stories from the world of sports. Episodes of the longest baseball game ever played (eight hours!) and the unstoppable rise of the UFC make perfect sparring partners. There’s also a highly bingeable seven-part series about Béla and Márta Károlyi, the controversial Hungarian coaches whose defection to the United States transformed gymnastics for a generation.

The Moth Radio Hour is the younger brother of The Moth’s iconic storytelling events, which – for 25 years – have seen speakers take the stage to tell transformative tales of their own lives. In the podcast iteration, listeners are treated to several inspiring stories per episode, on topics ranging from self-defense to discovering your inner beauty. You may never really know what you’re going to get from each speaker, but each one is guaranteed to give you the emotional fuel to take this run a little further.

song exploder
Musician Hrishikesh Hirway sits down with artists from Billie Eilish to Slipknot to break down a perfect song from their archive. The diversity of genres Hirway delves into (Ludwig Göransson on the trips to Africa that inspired his Black Panther soundtrack one week; pop sensation Selena Gomez the next) is cause for constant surprise – though nothing beats the rush. to discover a song that you really love happens. With a quick 20-minute runtime, it’s a unique way to hear how your favorite tunes come together, with two or three episodes providing a varied soundtrack for your next gym session.

Dedicated to couples who have “soldiered through unimaginable circumstances”, Committed is about perseverance. From WNBA star turned social justice activist Renee Montgomery, who met his wife Sirena Grace through basketball, to the story of the man who cycled from Sweden to India for the women he loved (puts that Saturday morning spin class into perspective, doesn’t it?), each episode finds a way to teach you a lesson in the infallible value of performing at your best. . The show’s archives are worth perusing to help reaffirm what humans can endure when we put our hearts into it.

Why does this happen?
Hosted by MSNBC reporter Chris Hayes, Why Is This Happening? goes beyond the headlines to understand the root causes and solutions to the stories bubbling under the news agenda. The quiet format (Hayes speaks non-combatively about each topic with a trustworthy, authoritative expert) and serious, solution-focused tone of each episode draws you into the conversation, giving you quiet time to exercise your brain. while you exercise your body. You can start anywhere, but the episode with author Ta-Nehisi Coates — recorded hours after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol — remains perhaps the best diagnostic of what that day really meant. for American democracy.

Items | O-Zone Podcast: Christian Kirk https://metawelle.net/items-o-zone-podcast-christian-kirk/ Sat, 22 Oct 2022 16:40:22 +0000 https://metawelle.net/items-o-zone-podcast-christian-kirk/

“There are a lot of similarities there. He was able to develop quickly. Then when we walk onto the pitch and talk football, that line of communication makes it a lot easier.”

Kirk, originally a second-round selection of the Arizona Cardinals in the 2018 NFL Draft, has 25 receptions for 362 yards and three touchdowns in six games this season. He has 261 career receptions for 3,264 yards and 21 touchdowns.

“Some guys just love being in the NFL, being able to put on a jersey on Sunday and play some shots,” Kirk said. “I don’t. I don’t play football to be average. I play football to be good at what I do. That’s what drives me.”

Kirk and Lawrence are offensive basemen, leaders of a team that has won half as many games in six weeks as it has in the past two seasons. Kirk said the improvement reflects a change he’s felt throughout the offseason, training camp and regular season.

“It’s a different team and a different culture,” he said.

And though the team has struggled to win close games this season, with all four losses by a score or less, the fifth-year veteran said his message to younger teammates remains consistent.

“It’s a long season,” Kirk said. “There are 17 games now. When you do it and prepare week in and week out, it’s a long season. You have guys just out of college and it’s almost two seasons of college football if you count the pre-season.

“With the leadership we have in our dressing room, there’s no panic. There’s no panic button. There’s none of that.”
